Amber Smith is a printmaker from Nelson. The imagery that Amber uses in her prints are an exploration of her wairoa (spirit) and what it means to come from Aotearoa. “I love words and nearly always use them in my work. Maori whakatauki (proverbs) and waiata aroha (songs about the nature of love) have such an emotional resonance that they become part of the image itself.”
